Don’t Let Holiday Stress Get the Best of You: Bruxism Treatment Options

It’s that time of year again where stress can be at an all-time high. That can mean a few things for your oral health. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can become a greater issue. It can also mean changes in diet, which can affect your teeth. Even though the holiday seasons is something to celebrate, that holiday stress can get the best of you. Here’s how to best it with bruxism treatment and facial esthetics.

Bruxism Treatment for the Holidays

Many people suffer from teeth grinding and seek bruxism treatment. Bruxism is generally perceived as a stress-induced condition. Those who suffer from bruxism often wake up in the morning with sore jaws, teeth, and facial muscles. The likely cause of that is teeth grinding taking place at night when they are sleeping.

Because this is a condition related to stress, it can often worsen during the holiday season and other times of high stress. You can do many things to beat the holiday stress, but there are also treatment options for bruxism.

Botox Don't Let Holiday Stress Get the Best of You: Bruxism Treatment Options

What better time to consider bruxism treatment through Botox than the holiday season? It’s fast acting and effective, so any sort of pain and discomfort you’re experiencing can be relieved fast.

Botox essentially helps relax the the facial muscles, making soreness and stiffness subside. By getting a Botox treatment before going to bed, you’ll rest easy without having to wake up to jaw discomfort or pain.

The cosmetic benefits of Botox are also worth mentioning. After getting a Botox injection, you’ll look younger and healthier almost instantly. Botox can last up to a year.

The dangers of Bruxism

Bruxism isn’t just about mouth pain. Teeth grinding can cause many problems in the long run, including worn down and broken teeth, weakened enamel, and crooked teeth. If you do not seek treatment, Bruxism can even wear down teeth enough to where they are only stumps and the second layer of tooth structure is showing.

At that point, bridges, crowns, root canals, dental implants, or dentures may be the only available options, if your dentist cannot save the teeth.

4 Benefits of Botox

When you think of Botox, you may think it’s a luxury of the rich and famous. That, however, is a major misconception. Just like with cosmetic 

dentistry, Botox benefits not just your looks, but has a lot of practical effects as well. Let’s take a look.

4 Awesome Botox Benefits

1. Reduce your sweating

Over-sweating is known as Hyperhidrosis, and it can be quite serious. Hyperhidrosis makes you sweat, sometimes even when the temperature is low. This decreases your body temperature and greatly increases your chance of hypothermia.

Many of us suffer from excessive sweating. This can cause a few different issues, from extreme temperature decrease to clogged pores. By injecting Botox, we’re effectively tightening the skin around the mouth and cheeks, minimizing the amount of sweat you produce.

2. Put an end to twitching

4 Benefits of Botox

An eye twitch may sound trivial, but many people suffer from a permanent or long-term muscle spasm that is annoying, to say the least. When the muscle spasm continues for too long, the muscle begins to tighten, which could make it pretty sore.

Botox benefits the muscles of your face by reducing tightness and over-activity. As long as the Botox is active in your face, the eye twitching will be essentially non-existent.

3. Dull the pain of migraines

There are many benefits of Botox, but it isn’t a definite cure for headaches. It can, however, soften the pain quite a bit. Those who suffer from frequent migraines also suffer from nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.

Botox is an FDA approved treatment and preventative measure for migraines due to its relaxation factor. Botox can help prevent migraines and, when injected in appropriate amounts in the right areas, produces results that can last up to three or four months.

4. Stop drooping

A drooping brow, or ptosis as it’s medically referred, has the unfortunate effect of making an individual look upset and/or tired. However, it isn’t an expression, but a weakened muscle that hangs down lower than it should.

A drooping brow can often be treated by changing your diet. However, many cases of eyebrow ptosis are genetic and require a different approach, whether it be dermal fillers or Botox. Injecting Botox into the affected area allows the muscle to straighten out again and make them look tighter.
